Warner Bros. Pictures has picked up the rights to the DC Comic, Deadman, associated with Guillermo del Toro and Angryfilms' Don Murphy.

The comic focuses on a ghost who, when alive, was a circus acrobat named Boston Brand, notes Variety. He was murdered during a trapeze performance by an unknown assailant but his spirit was granted the power to possess the living in order to search for his murderer as well as help the innocent.

Deadman has no production schedule set.
